Good morning! As you can see from the photo, I’ve been looking at planners. Why?? Because I realized that my beloved Passion Planner never launched for 2022. By now, I usually have it in my hands. I emailed them. No answer. Now they say they have supply chain issues and maybe they will launch at the end of the month. I’m sad. I went out and bought this one because my planning for next year starts now. As you know, planner shopping seems kind of ridiculous since we have no idea what will be going on next year. I mean, I thought I’d use my planner more this year and it didn’t happen. But, this girl has to have a planner.
I am still waiting for My Heart is a Chainsaw to come in from the library. Since I finished Hamnet, what a book that was, I reached for my review copy of The Family Plot. I thought I’d read a few chapters and then promptly read 25% of it. What a fun story. I hope to be done with it soon.
Tonight, my book club will meet on my patio to discuss Hamnet. We’ll enjoy nibbly bits, drink, and talk about books. The perfect combination.
I absolutely love this time of the year. Cool mornings and warm afternoons. I went looking for some fall candles this past weekend but didn’t find any I liked. I like outdoorsy smells, not foody smells like apple or pumpkin. The problem is that all the candles I love are $50. Ha! I can’t see myself spending that on a candle. Yes, I do buy them now and then as a gift to myself but I tend to lean on the practical side of spending.
I don’t know if you fall into the Pumpkin Spice Latte camp but I tried their new drink, the Apple Crisp Macchiato. Let me save you some time, skip it. I don’t go to Starbucks often, maybe once a month? But that Apple Crisp drink sounded so good and I took one sip and said NOPE. It tasted like an Apple Jolly Rancher. So darn sweet and artificial. I had it iced. Maybe it’s better warm.
That’s all I’ve got. Tomorrow I go for that additional imaging I mentioned. I have to go to the hospital for that and it’s a ways away. Not looking forward to that morning traffic.
Have a good rest of the week. Tell me what you are reading and what you are making for football weekends in the way of food.
